Subject: Probably The Best GRATEFUL DEAD Show In History
THE MUSIC HAS BEEN SET FREE. THE KEEPERS HAVE GIVEN US THE SHOW OF SHOWS. THE UNIVERSE HAS BECOME RICHER THAN IT WAS. THIS IS THE TRUTH ABOUT THE MUSIC THAT CHANGED THE DESTINY OF THE UNIVERSE FOREVER.

Audio Quality: "Excellent"

02. The Weight
03. Last lonely Eagle
04. Fun, Fun, Fun
05. Running Back to You
06. I Don't Know You
07. Dirty Business
08. Glendale Train

03. Playing In The Band (superb)
04. Hard To Handle (the best version there is)
05. Dark Star> (religious experience)

09. It Hurts Me Too (classic Pigpen WOW!!!)
10. Beat It On Down The Line (jump'n)
11. China Cat Sunflower (holy moly)
12. I Know You Rider (more moly than holy)
13. Good Lovin'(best version there is)
14. Sing Me Back Home (Jerry's song...)
15. Not Fade Away>
16. Going Down The Road Feeling Bad>
17. Not Fade Away

I love all the breaks in between the songs; it gives us a chance to hear what it was like to be there.

Duane Allman, the lead guitar player for the Allman Brothers plays slide guitar on Sugar Magnolia, it's my favorite version.

4 Pigpen songs makes this show even more special. Pigpen's performances are exceptional.
I wish I was at this show. Well, now at least I can say I heard it.

You can clearly hear the New York City audience screaming for more at the end of the show as if their lives depended on it...scary eh?

When the GRATEFUL DEAD sang to us, "YOU KNOW OUR LOVE WILL NOT FADE AWAY" they meant it and this show proves it 37 years later.

THANKS FOR THE LOVE.

Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD. I do.
